Saw it last night: A disturbing bloodbath of a comedy about terrorism, torture, love of county and love of cats--the last of which I wholeheartedly endorse along with this stunning work of theatre. I'm not sure it would be possible to laugh if this play were set in Afghanistan or Iraq or New York. Why is it we can watch the carnage in an Irish village and laugh (OK--with some shame) at the exaggerations while recognizing the truths? The Irish lived through this violence and yet are able to take in the dark absurd reality of it all. Hoping the ceasefire holds over there.
